Triflex Towersafe: tower and foundation waterproofing system

Wind turbines exploit the forces of nature and give us clean, renewable energy. In the process, the tower and foundation are exposed to strong forces from wind, and the constant movement of the turbines puts stress on the structure. The strong deformation forces can encourage cracks in the tower and tower foundation and penetrating moisture can lead to long-term damage.



Triflex Towersafe is a waterproofing system specially developed for wind turbines. A flexible special-purpose fleece reinforcement ensures permanently elastic system properties. Its liquid form allows upstands, folds and even complex details, like bolt cage foundations, to be waterproofed seamlessly and without joints. With Triflex Towersafe a high quality technical solution is achieved.
